We had a wonderful experience with People Movers! We were moving into a 4 story town house in Issaquah, wow did these guys hustle. They quoted us 5 hours but the guys were going full speed the whole time and we finished under 4 hours but were still very careful with our belongings. Our movers were Vadim, Devin & Max, we would highly recommend them!

Stephen did my move from an apartment to my new house. To start with he had great communication from the beginning. He gave me a fair quote and we set a date. He showed up on time with another guy to help and was clear from the beginning how long he thought it would take. They were respectful and careful and damaged NOTHING. I don't think I have ever seen someone pack a truck more efficiently. It took two trips and 4 hours, which he told me it would. I would hire him again and recommend him to friends. In fact one friend was with me all day and asked for his contact information. I hear that Stephen does a multitude of things. Don't hesitate to contact this honest and hard working guy. I know I won't. OH! and he came all the way from Tacoma to Seattle to do the Job.

The move that Corey and his team did for me not only met, but greatly exceeded my expectations! Prior to the move he thoughtfully planned everything out so that on the day of the move everything was ready to go (since my move was two-fold). The plan involved renting two separate trucks where they moved half of my things from my apartment in Kirkland to a space in Lake City and the other half to my new place in Kent. He made a complicated move less stressful and a more pleasant experience for me than I ever expected. On the day of the move they showed up on time, and started working right away. Corey is a very good communicator and let's his team know exactly what needs to be done as he's working right along side them. He had a great attitude and is very funny too, which made the mood of the move a wonderful overall experience. He also means business and tries to get the move done in a timely manner and as close to the original quote as possible. They were also very careful with my things and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast and efficiently they moved everything. I had a lot of stuff and was out of the old place within a few hours! I would definitely recommend him to anyone moving and would also use him again for any of my future moves.

A2B Moving was able to fit me into their schedule with less than a day's notice, after another moving company cancelled on me. Their movers were on time and got right to work with speed and care. When I paid my final moving bill, it was WELL below the price quote I received over the phone. All in all, a reliable and honest company that I would hire again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely incredible service! They arrived in a timely manner, had phenomenal communication with me throughout the process, and truly went above and beyond to get the couch from the warehouse pickup in Tukwila into my third story apartment in Bremerton. They were incredibly helpful, had a good sense of humor, and clearly took pride in the service they provided. I would recommend them to anyone and I will most certainly hire them again in the future! Great service at an incredibly affordable, literally unbeatable price!

One of the best move experiences I've had! Movers were extremely professional, fast and polite. 2 movers from Moving2Gether were able to achieve something none of 3 man crews I hired previously - 0 damage to any of my walls or belongings! On top of their awesome work, they were not just on time, but they even offered me an option to come earlier which worked very well for me. All my belongings were carefully wrapped and treated with care, so I didn't have to worry about any fragile items that were moved. I really loved my move experience and appreciate having business with Moving2Gether!

Had an amazing experience moving with Cornelius and co. They were very professional and quickly moved the entire apartment and also set it up in the new one. The move was very inexpensive compared to ten other places I enquired but the quality was top notch.

These guys are the best. I had ordered a a very large and heavy bathroom vanity that my husband and I could not get into the bathroom. They came and had it done in 20 minutes for a very reasonable price. They are my movers of choice and I will refer to them and always use their service.

It is white great pleasure I give this review. We reserved labor with Gentle Hand Moving Services to help us move out of our 4 bedroom home. We had rented our own UHaul truck. In the middle of transporting our items, our HAUL BREAKS DOWN, holding the movers hostage on the freeway. UHaul worked quickly to get the truck back up and running and simply couldn't. They ended up send out a replacement truck. We had to have them unload the old truck and reload the replacement. A big inconvenience to them I'm quite sure. We were panicking, but Gentle Hands stuck with us the entire time and insured our items arrived to our new home safe & sound. GREAT BIG THANK YOU to the entire Gentle Hands Team! We don't know what we had done without you.

Positively great experience moving from years in our 4 bedroom house to our new smaller home. These are professional movers - not 2 guys with a truck. Very capable/technically skilled, thorough, hardworking, efficient and so nice. I’d recommend them without any reservations. Service and value! Thanks again Mo and Tim.

I wanted to move a couple of boxes and heavy equipment from my home to a storage unit, thus I didn't need a moving crew for a long period of time (the majority of the movers I contacted had minimum time requirements, 3h was the common one). Since Zolo doesn't have those time minimums, it worked perfectly for me. They sent a two persons crew which did a fantastic job, they took care of everything. The only thing I had to do was to show them what was going and what was staying. They also unloaded and arranged my stuff at the destination perfectly. I would definitely hire them again.

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do moving companies do?

Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

  • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
  • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
  • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
  • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
  • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

How much does a moving company charge per hour?

When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.

How much does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.
